Vacation Bible School Registration
Cost per child $25 ● 3 children $65 ● Each additional child $15
VBS is open for children ages 4 - 10-years-old. Older youth and adults are welcome to register to volunteer, as the activities are geared for children in 5th grade and younger.
This year's VBS theme is "Knights of the North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armour!"
Children arrive Monday through Friday (9am - 12:30pm) during the week of August 17th. Participants will be in mixed age groups of about 12-15 children. All groups will stay the same each day. There will be both a group leader and an assistant.
The groups meet for about 15-20 mins. at the start of each day in the Community Room. All the groups will come together for an opening where the Bible message for the day will be presented, we'll sing a song or two together, and share any announcements. Then the groups separate and will move through rotations.
There's a game rotation (which will be outside unless it rains), a drama rotation - where participants will hear a Bible story, a snack rotation (juice, water, and simple snacks will be served), a science rotation, and a craft rotation.
Near the end of each day, each group will sit down together once again to share their experiences and thoughts with their leader and assistant as well as each other.
Each day will end with all the groups coming together once again for closing thoughts, reflections, songs, and prayer.
On the Friday, August 21st, in addition to the morning program, there will be an evening Celebration Potluck Dinner. All participants are invited to come back (with as many family members as they'd like) to eat dinner together, view a slideshow showing the week's activities, hear VBS songs, and see what we have been up to all week.
The cost for VBS includes all the supplies, snacks, as well as a CD with VBS songs.
